O.K. everyone,

I finally mastered the photo end this time and believe these shots accurately relate the tale of Randy?s last trip. Incredible is how I would describe the aftermath that resembled a fantastic Revilla Gigedo or Clipperton voyage rather than a fall ten day. Or does it? I don?t know if all of you have recognized the pattern yet; if not I will tell you again. The later fall ten and longer day trips have been producing noteworthy catches of giant yellowfin for many years now. I recall several trips six or seven years back that produced catches of ten yellowfin over two hundred and even much better. This fact was always obscured by the robust yellowfin fishery for giants in the Revilla Gigedo chain. Now that we are faced with the unfortunate Revilla closure, these fall catches have entered the limelight. Thank goodness that the fish gods have been kind to us at this juncture. The bottom line is this, if you want a shot at trophy yellowfin, a fall ten day voyage, especially a later voyage in October, November, or December, is a very good bet.

To demonstrate this point I am including a list of weights from this last trip. These fish were all yellowfin and comprise about fifty percent of the total trophy yellowfin catch.
